Welcome New CASAs

Chesterfield CASA's newest court appointed special advocates were sworn in

On February 12, our newest Court Appointed Special Advocates were sworn in by Chief Judge Travis R. Williams. Congratulations to Tawanda Mizelle, Charlene Denise Pope, Ande Taylor, Cassandra Brown, and Richard Ginn! We are thrilled to have them join Chesterfield CASA and add their voices to speak for children.

Metro CASA Training


Did you know that CASAs are required to participate in continuing education each year? Chesterfield CASA volunteers recently joined CASAs from our neighboring programs in Henrico, Richmond, Goochland, and Hanover to learn more about children’s mental health. Dr. Dorothy O’Keefe, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist at the Children’s Hospital of Richmond, shared information on various diagnoses and treatment options for children and adolescents.
